SOUS Sketch Reveal


It's Sketch Reveal Day
at
 
And, I'm so happy to be
able to show you my layout.
 
Hubby and I outside the
Moulin Rouge in Paris,
 during our recent trip. 



The fabulous sketch from
our own co-leader
 Leah.



Papers used are from
 Kaiser
 "Velvet Ensemble"




Film Strip from
 Tim Holtz
 "Filmstrip Frames" die.
 
Loving all the little photo's
I was able to display.



Some fussy cutting from the papers.
 
And a wee bit red tassel trim.



The beautiful floral embellishment
 was bought a few years ago
from a haberdashery store
 when I lived in Australia.



Spellbinders
 "Opulent Ovals"
for the mask image.



Spellbinders
"Grand Decorative Ovals One"
 for the large black 'circle'.
 
"Fleur De Lis Accents"
 for the corner pieces.




The show was absolutely fabulous.
 It was such a thrill to see the
 "Can Can".
 
Boy, can those girls dance!
 
And, the costumes!!!
 
They must have changed thirty
 times - no exaggeration!
 
Spectacular!





Found this old black and white
 photo, on the Net, 
of the Moulin Rouge back in the 1900s






Loved how this layout came together.
 Another treasured memory
 for the album.


Now, head on over to the
 and drool over the work
 of my fellow DT girls,
 and then have a go at this
 wonderful sketch.
 
Would love to come and visit
 you on your Blogs and
 leave some scrappy love.
 
Other happenings in the world
of Stuck On U Sketches
 are the sad news that one of
our co-leaders, Sandi Clarkson,
has made the difficult decision
 to leave SOUS.
 
She was one of the founders way
 back from day 1, and will
 be missed. The link to her
 blog remains on my side bar
 (of course).
 
Sadly we are also losing Fern Riley
 
I wish them all well and can't
 wait to see what they
 are up to next...lol
 
Other news, which you may
 have noticed. I have updated
my profile picture, at last.
 
The previous photo was five
 years old! Time is marching on,
and so are the wrinkles...lol
 
This new profile photo is from
one of the photo's taken in
 Paris recently.
 
 Should be good for another
five years - I hope!!
 
Some exciting news to come soon.
 
But, that's me for the time being.
 
Hugs
